Alter Eco Streamlines Distribution to Independent and Natural Food Retailers Through Partnership with Unique Health Products

TAMARAMA, Australia–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Alter
Eco
, pioneer of globally-crafted organic foods with full-circle
sustainability, announced it has strengthened its relationship with
leading natural foods distributor, Unique Health Products, making the
company its primary retail distribution partner for the independent and
natural channels.

An independently-owned and operated company for more than 10 years in
Australia, Alter Eco is dedicated to crafting delicious fairtrade,
organic foods with the simple mission of supporting farmers to build
sustainable futures around the world.

Ilse Keijzer, Founder and Director of Alter Eco in Australia, states, “Since
our humble beginnings in Bondi Beach over 10 years ago, Alter Eco has
built a strong following across Australia, and we’re delighted to expand
our partnership with Unique Health Products to more efficiently supply
the natural and independent retail channels in all Australian states. We
are aware of rumblings that Alter Eco was sold to another company or has
ceased manufacturing its own products, and want to very clearly assure
our retail partners and consumers that Alter Eco is, and always has
been, an independently owned company, and that our products will
continue to be available to any interested retailers. Our updated
relationship with Unique Health Products will help us further our vision
of facilitating accessibility of our high quality, organic, fairtrade,
and carbon compensated products to as many people as possible
while
growing the volume we purchase to help maximize our positive impact on
indigenous farmers and their communities.”

As one of the first organic, fairtrade chocolates available in
Australia, Alter Eco practices full-circle sustainability using Fair
Trade values. The company creates minimal waste by working towards 100
percent compostable packaging (Alter Eco chocolate truffle wrappers are
already fully non-GMO, home compostable), and offsetting 100 percent of
its carbon emissions through large reforestation projects within the
farming communities in the Amazon region who supply Alter Eco’s
ingredients (“in-setting”). Co-founded by transplanted Dutch
entrepreneur Ilse Keijzer, Alter Eco is a values-based brand that crafts
minimally-processed and single-origin organic, fairtrade, gluten-free,
soy-free and non-GMO chocolate bars and chocolate truffles made with
pure coconut oil to directly benefit small producers globally. Alter Eco
also offers organic and fairtrade heirloom Thai rice and Mascobado cane
sugar.

A leading chocolate brand in the premium and sustainable segment in
Australia, the company selects only the finest South American organic
cacao beans and works with expert Swiss chocolatiers to create its
deliciously smooth chocolates. Alter Eco is available at major
retailers, all health food stores, leading independent retailers,
selected pharmacies, online stores and cafés across Australia.
